Just call him Maxwell-damus, because Cedric Maxwell had a good feeling that Doc Rivers, Kevin Garnett, and Paul Pierce would be out the door before next season.

It hasn't happened yet, but it's looking more and more serious by the hour.

Rivers and Garnett could be on their way to Los Angeles soon, and Paul Pierce may even follow right after them.

Maxwell was back on the CSNNE set Monday night to discuss the recent trade talks between the Celtics and Clippers.

"This is what I thought in the beginning," Maxwell said. "I thought that Doc Rivers the way it was, body language, everything else going on, I thought that there would be some movement. I didn't think Paul would be back. I thought that Kevin Garnett had an opportunity right now to void his no-trade clause. Doc Rivers, his body language at the end. The hug, the embrace, the players, just didn't seem to be like, 'I'll see you next year.' It was like, 'I'll see you when I see you, and it might be someplace else.' I just think that Doc right now, he's created a great legacy here, but who would be a better coach right now that you could think of on Los Angeles coaching what could possibly be another super team?"

Tanguay doesn't think that Doc is a true Celtic if this is the way he goes out, but Maxwell does think he is because of what he did give the Celtics when he came here.

Does Maxwell think this deal is going to happen? And if so, who does Maxwell think will be a good coaching replacement? Find out in the video.
